Visions are worth fighting for. Why spend your life making someone else's dreams?
— Orson Welles from the movie Ed Wood (1994)
Working primarily with video and text, my multidisciplinary practice orbits around inquiries of displacement, tension, and situation. Becoming a repatriate of Portland, Oregon after a stint as an Army brat during the latter Bush presidency serves as the nexus of my politically conscious work. By exploring tactics and strategies in cinema, advertising, and contemporary art, I embed my disquieted American dream into time-based spectacles and DIY-inspired objects. Currently, I am exploring the modular properties of video and the potential applications of these deconstructed elements as solo entities.
